    New to me, just got it yesterday.

    The SNAFU and the Bear are 2 completely different beasts. Both are wonderful flippers, both are exquisitely made, but they do have very different characteristics. It all depends on how your personal tastes lean.

    The SNAFU is an integral with very tight tolerances - centering the blade is absolutely necessary, else it will rub. The Laconico is a bit more forgiving. The SNAFU has an insane detent so that the 4 inch blade flies out when it breaks, and when it closes you hear a solid "chink" sound echo through the house - my god, the noises this thing makes. The Laconico has a much softer detent, but enough to flip perfectly every time. The Laconico's action is smoother, that's what Ray is famous for, but the SNAFU is an exercise in technical machining and solid-as-:censored:-ness.

    The SNAFU seems more like a work horse knife, very aggressive jimping all over, grippy fullers, and the milled clip holds the knife tight in the pocket. The Laconico's finish is very smooth, it is more, for lack of a better word, elegant.

    Both carry about the same, the SNAFU is a bit heavier and almost an inch longer when closed (5.25" closed), but still manageable because it is about the same thickness as the Laconico.

    I am very happy with both, and I don't feel like they are redundant blades.

    I searched for this for a long time. GEC #66 Jack in Rotten Banana bone. They only made a small handful about 6 years ago, this is #14 of 25. Very happy to have gotten it uncarried and unused. It will be carried and used now that it's mine though. :)

    Loving the patina on my Maratac too.

    Nice find! The #66 Jack is a great pattern ... both the Rotten Banana and the Smooth Yellow Rose bone were made in very short numbers ... I was fortunate enough to snag one of the latter last year, and I too was verrry happy.
    Beautiful knife man, enjoy it and thanks for sharing!

    CJinPa where did you find a Handkerchief made in the States and what is the brand?

    I used ones made in the States at Wally World many moons ago, but have been unable to in the past....oh 10 years or so.
